Raw Spinach and Avocado Dip

Spinach and Avocado Dip | The Healthy Family and Home

This Raw Spinach and Avocado Dip is bright green and oh so fresh!

There’s just nothing else like eating live food and the way it makes your body feel afterwards.

It’s such a clean, pure way of eating.

When I finished making this recipe (and ate the entire bowl by myself in one sitting), I couldn’t believe that I had just eaten 5 cups of spinach!  And an entire avocado!

The first thing that strikes me when I look at it is how vibrant and green it is!

Is it really ok to call a dip “beautiful”?  For this one, I think so.

This is an excellent dip for dehydrated crackers, Raw Corn Chips or even some fresh vegetables.

It’s fast and easy to make and only requires a few basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand!

Tip #1:   This recipe will make enough for 1 – 2 servings.  If you need more, you will need to double the recipe.

Tip #2:  Every time I make it, I use slightly different amounts in different combinations of Himalayan pin salt, garlic, lemon and onions, so it always tastes a little different each time (ex.  sometimes I use 2 lemons instead of 1 and it’s a little tangier, sometimes I add a little extra salt, same with the garlic and onion.  Sometimes I even add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper).  Feel free to make adjustments to your preference.

    I’m always on the lookout for new exciting ways to enjoy avocado and this dip looks and sounds so delicious. I love how you included all those health facts. Thank you for sharing this easy recipe, I look forward to trying it.

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Adriana! I’m glad you’re going to give it a try and hope you like it. I like to include the health facts because not only is the recipe good, but to show that it’s good for you too. This is a 100% guilt-free snack. Thanks for visiting! :)

    I’d been searching for a good replacement for guacamole and salsa as I am nightshade free. This looks SO simple and delish (as I am a HUGE fan of both avocados and spinach), and I can use it with so many versatile recipes as a dip/sauce/spread. Thanks for posting!

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Boudica! Yes, it is a nice change of pace from regular dips and it’s so good for you too! I’m glad you like it (it’s one of my favorites too!) Just adjust the salt, garlic and lemon to your preference. I like a lot of lemon in mine but not too much salt. Thanks for stopping by! :)

    Hi
    Just made this and its really great… love the zippyness (that’s so not a word lol)
    I’m new to avocados and wondering how long this will last.
    Thx so much

    • Karielyn says

      H there Gem! I so glad to hear you enjoyed it!

      Unfortunately, as many times as I’ve made this, I’ve never had any leftover to know how long it will store lol!

      Normally avocados don’t stay fresh very long after you’ve cut them, but since this has some lemon juice in it, they may last a day or so.

      Thank you for trying out the recipe and for your question 😉

    This was sooooo yummy! I’m doing a Sugar Detox and needed a quick snack. I forgot the salt, but loved it the same. Like Mexican Dip Crack! I’ve shared with a Detox Group on FB. Thanks for something so yummy.

    • Karielyn says

      Hi there Renee! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed it! And I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but I have actually eaten the entire batch before by myself…yes I did!

      Thanks for trying out the recipe and for sharing it…I really appreciate it 😉
